    Caption is at the bottom of the image, proof through the screenshot of my steam profile, and the game is Dragon Age: Origins :)


    Next up we have Fallout 3 giant hands. Having a little trouble reaching the trigger?

    And now for a classic Halo 3 sticky to the forehead:

    a few old original Day of Defeat screenies, back when I frequently played fps multiplayers.

    ^helpful team mates, ironically we were still winning lol

    ^I was on axis, we were kicking ass and I was the top scorer, so the admin swapped me to try and balance the teams...it didn't go the way he planned. I avted as a nazi spy killing as many as I could. burying me actually helped, I could see them but they couldn't see me and my mg could penetrate the ground easily.


    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    ^I must have spent a half hour tk'ing this afk guy. I killed him every way you could in dod. This time I was alittle too close when I naded him. lol


    [​IMG]
    ^there's nothing quite like tk knifing your apprentice in the ass.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    ^we have one flag left, axis has infiltrated our base, my apprentice is guarding the main through-way and has the only mg....so why not knife him in the face? I mean it's not like my team needed me or anything. Also it appears that server didn't like certain words that are funny to me. (see first screen in this group)

    ^ ah yes weak gpu's always change the color of the grass....lol

    Okay ... after careful deliberation (and waiting painfully for my crap internet connection to load each page of images) ...

    The winner is LifeOnMars's "It's amazing what you can get for 2 coppers nowadays."
    Great picture, great description and the question mark above the other NPC's head makes it even funnier.

    @LifeOnMars : Send me a PM with your Steam name and what game you would like and I will gift it to you as soon as I can.

    Oh wait !!! In two days it's my birthday!!
    Whoever posts the most humorous birthday wishes (text only) to me in the next two days gets their choice of a Steam game too.
    1 post only per member. Keep it within the TPU posting rules.
    (@LifeOnMars, you can't win this one, but you can participate for the lulz)
    3 .. 2 .. 1 .. Go

    Nah, when you get to my age the highlight of a birthday is going outside, finding some dirt and yelling "N00B".

    Now where's the supermods when you need them?

    Just wanted to say thanks alot to Kreij. I can't stop winning games recently :laugh: Out of my current wishlist of 124 games I'm having a tough time deciding which one to go for.

    Seems very cheeky to go for a full price new title when there are so many on offer in the sale :)

    Help me decide guys - Shortlist

    FEAR 3 or FEAR 2(I have FEAR 1 + expansions)
    Borderlands GOTY edition
    Bioshock 1 or 2
    Dead Rising 2
    Arcania - Gothic 4
    Divinity II - Dragon Knight Saga
    Mass Effect 2 ( I have the 1st)
    Portal 2 ( I have the 1st)
    Dirt 3 (I have 1 & 2)
    Dead Space 2 (I have the 1st)
    The Witcher 2 ( I have never played the 1st)

    Well done LOM. :toast:

    That's a good selection of games and there's more than one choice there, really.

    You could actually go for the Valve complete pack and gift the games you don't need in another TPU contest, perhaps? It's currently sitting at £25, 82% off. This would get you Portal 2 (£20 (£30 full) on its own) along with other Valve games you don't have.

    http://store.steampowered.com/sub/7930


    Or, you could go for Dead Space 2 or Borderlands, both of which look very good.

    I'd be careful about Dirt 3, due to potential control issues and the GUI interface being very poorly designed. I first tried Dirt 2 first, which I'd been gifted a while back and was sorely disappointed. :shadedshu

    Graphics were superb, but I couldn't control the car with my keyboard and mouse, nor my Logitech joystick, leaving the keyboard as the only option. This left me driving the car like someone blind drunk and made the game unplayable. Just make sure you get a compatible analog joystick first, if you're gonna play this game, as it's essential.

    Now that is a cracking idea buddy. I could get Half-Life 1, Portal 2 and Left For Dead 1 & 2 from that collection to pretty much complete my existing Valve collection (Thx to winning the OB in your comp :laugh: )

    How would I go about gifting the rest? I've never done that before. If you could send me a PM that would be great and then I'll send a PM to Old Uncle Kreij :)

    EDIT - And get an Xbox 360 controller, it works awesome with Dirt 1 & 2 and a multitude of other ported games to PC. Alot of games actually support it and it's nice to have that rumbling between your hands:D

    The extra game just sits there in your Library with a 1 against it, indicating that you can gift it. So, you run a competition, just get the winner's Steam ID and you can do it via the Steam client. Takes just a few seconds. BTW, I already have every Valve game. :D

    I might just try that XBOX 360 controller. :)

    Congratulations LifeOnMars, and Happy Birthday Kreij!
    I hope your Birthday consists of much dirt-yelling and undercover partying :pimp:
    Have one on me, I'll be sober :(
